Hobbit Day 2020

Happy Hobbit Day

Even in a crazy year like 2020, don't forget to stop and appreciate life. On this 22nd of September, don't forget to celebrate Hobbit Day!

In lieu of our usual coverage of J. R. R. Tolkien's works, here's a list of celebrations going on today:

Want to experience life as a Hobbit? You can visit the set of Hobbiton from The Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit films. Originally one of many scenes and sets built and filmed in New Zealand, the set of Hobbiton, home of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, is preserved for all to enjoy. Tours are a frequent activity, and a special five hour event is held on September 22nd. It might be a little late to plan this year, but there's always the next one!

You can learn more about Hobbiton Tours at the Hobbiton Movie Set website., opens a new window 

Want to share your love of The Hobbit with the world? You can look no further than social media, where you can follow the trending tweets of many Hobbitophiles. Just check out your feed on Twitter or Facebook.

Can' find one? Feel free to start your own! Post #HobbitDay and whatever fond thought you have and just wait for your fellow fans to chime in.


Looking for Hobbit Day activities? It's never too late to celebrate!

Reading the book again, or even just your favorite chapter is always fun!

You can also make a big Hobbit-style meal filled with all of your favorite foods. Hobbits tend to have as much as six meals a day, so don't forget to skip second breakfast!

There are other fun Hobbit-day activities you can do as well: gardening, walking around barefoot, and more! See how creative you can be!

Looking for something else? As always, The St. Tammany Parish Library is happy to offer free use of our online catalog, opens a new window for more information on this and other searches.
